I think that because of all the free agents that have signed with Calgary and a majority hitting their prime or just over it, you will start to see players develop and become good pros.

Just like the Jankowski pick up this year, the Flames have no intention on him making a jump to the NHL within the next 3 years. He's going to need the development in college and maybe a year or 2 in the minors before he's ready. And by that time, they will have room for him to be that guy.
